Gospel text (Jn 14:21-26): Jesus said to his disciples: "(…) Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him."

The Divinity dwells in our soul through Grace

Fr. Norbert ESTARRIOL i Seseras (Lleida, Spain)

Today, Jesus shows us His immense desire for us to share His plenitude. United with Him, we live into the stream of Divine Life that is the Holy Trinity. Jesus Christ assures us He will be present in us in the Divine Intimacy of the soul through grace.

God's presence in our heart will help us discover and carry out in this world those designs that the Divine Providence may have planned for us. The Spirit of the Lord will arouse initiatives in our heart to be placed on top of all human activities. If we manage to have this intimacy with Jesus we shall end up by being good sons of God and will always and everywhere feel like his friends.

—Saint Mary, our Mother, intercede for us to deeply enter into this covenant with the Holy Trinity. All light and fire of Divine Life will fall upon each one of the faithful who are willing to receive the gift of Divinity living in our soul.
